Not that this should come as a surprise to any of you, but despite this afternoon’s probable packed house to pay tribute to Mike Piazza, Mets’ attendance will drop for the fifth straight season. Not counting Saturday and Sunday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York crunched the numbers and calculates that with an average attendance of 26,467, the Mets rank 21st in the majors. Here’s a year-by-year look that illustrates the steady decline since 2008 when over four […]
The Brewers scored two two runs in the top of the tenth to beat the Mets, 4-2, in ten innings on Saturday at Citi Field. Aaron Harang made his fourth start of the season for the Mets and it was undoubtedly his best and probably his last too. The veteran righthander allowed just one run – a solo homer by Carlos Gomez – in his six innings of work. Harang allowed five hits, waled two […]
Longtime Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano has been with the Amazin’s for the majority of his major-league career, only taking a two-year, $8 million hiatus from Flushing courtesy of the New York Yankees. Even so, he’s never thrown a major league pitch for any team other than the Mets. Perpetual Pedro is back in orange and blue once again this season, a theme the 37-year old Puerto Rico-native looks to continue for the remainder of his […]
Welcome to the second installment of Where Are They Now?, where we take a Mets roster and check in on what the players have done since last playing in Queens. Last week, we looked at the 2010 Mets, so this week we go back a year and look at the 2009 team, the first year the Mets played their home games at Citi Field. That season, Jerry Manuel led his squad to a 70-92 record, […]
If you are a Mets fan, you know that David Wright is still with team, or that Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran are in Toronto and St. Louis, respectively. But what happened to guys like Nick Evans or Rod Barajas? We have the answers. 11 Players who made it into a game in 2010 with the Mets, are still employed by the team. That would be the aforementioned David Wright, Ike Davis, Ruben Tejada (Although […]
While we have spent much time debating over whether to trade for Elvis Andrus or Jurickson Profar, the word out of Arlington is that neither Profar or Andrus will be dangled this offseason. Rather, Ian Kinsler is the player the Rangers would prefer to trade. Profar is 21; Andrus is 24; Kinsler is 31. Therefore, Kinsler’s future is a lot shorter than the other two. Now, while Andrus or Profar can be traded, the Rangers […]
Just before that start of the 2007 season as the Mets were breaking camp at Port St. Lucie I remembered a conversation I had with Mark Hale of the New York Post. It was one of the first interviews I did for MMO, and one of my questions was regarding a seldom heard reliever by the name of Pedro Feliciano. I think one of the players I read and hear the least about is Pedro […]
Citi, the New York Mets and the Mets Alumni Association were on hand Monday prior to the series opener against the Atlanta Braves in front of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda to help fight hunger in our area. As part of the initiative, over 75 Citi volunteers and the Mets were on hand along with City Harvest to repackage over 25,000 pounds of sweet potatoes. Members of the Mets Alumni Association Rusty Staub and John Franco […]
In a must-read column for the National Sports Journalism Center website at Indiana University, Ed Sherman delves into the subject that neither MLB or Fox Sports wants to talk about – and that is four straight years of significant declines in viewership ratings for the All-Star Game. Here is a small part taken from the full article which you can read here. Now let’s not get into a prolonged discussion on how the TV landscape has […]
